I met James Golnick for the first time yesterday, 7/25/23, at Frist Methodist Church, Kewanee, IL. As this was only my 2nd funeral service to facilitate in 35 years, James was so wonderfully supportive and helpful in guiding me in my duties. Anxious though I was, James possesses a calm, dignified, professional demeanor that assuaged my trepidation, and directed the funeral service with tremendous aplomb, and unmatched skills. Thank you James and all your staff for helping an old man out!

I have to say I have been dealing with this funeral home and staff since 83 and they are the best most all of our family has went through them. They make this process as less painful as possible and we are from Missouri, so we did everything over email, and it went so smooth and just the way my dad wanted it. I couldn't ask for better more caring people to help you through this. If you have to pick a place, please pick them I promise you won't regret your decision. The make-up artist does amazing work to make them look the way they should that's always my concern. So once again from my family to your Thank you for the love, care and respect you shown our families for so many years.

James and Brandee were wonderful when my husband passed away last year. They helped our family plan every aspect of his funeral the way we wanted. They offered support, understanding, and comfort along the way and even after the services were over. I highly recommend using Schueneman-Tumbleson Funeral Home.
